Where’s the beef?

A California lawsuit claims that fast food giant Taco Bell is NOT serving 100% beef and that instead they use a meat mixture containing “binders” and “extenders.” The suit claims that this combination doesn’t meet requirements set up by the USDA to be called beef.

“What’s for dinner, Mom?” 

“NearlyBeefaroni!”  

   Huh?

“Beef-kinda-sortanoff”

 Come again?

“Beef…almost-fredo”

Sigh.

Taco Bell countersued saying their seasoned beef contains “88 percent USDA-inspected beef and the rest is water, spices and a mixture of oats, starch and other ingredients that contribute to the “quality” its product.” The company said it uses no extenders.

Um … I don’t even know what an “extender” is, do you?  I do know this: I don’t want to know. 

Let’s not even discuss the makings of a chicken nugget.
